The William F. Cribari bridge is all over the news. Plans are meandering and/or plowing ahead for reconstruction. Meanwhile, emergency repairs will begin soon.
And there’s a brouhaha over the recent spate of rush hour closings, in order to accommodate a boat moored just north of the swing span.
A discussion rages in the “06880” comments section: Is the 136-year-old bridge historic? Or just old?
You be the judge. This photo — sent by Carmine Picarello — comes from Eve Potts’ great book, “Westport…A Special Place.”
We’re not sure what the future holds. But whatever a renovated or new bridge looks like, one thing is sure.
It won’t have trolley tracks.
